The Connected Beginnings Lutruwita/Tasmania has established several dedicated working groups, governance tables, advisory groups and sprint groups to implement strategic objectives to increase the health and educational outcomes for Aboriginal children and their families who reside within the Kutalayna Collective, Pataway Collective and Kanamaluka Collective sites.
Some of these groups within the sites include:
Kutalayna Collective Table
This is the central body responsible for coordinating and overseeing the activities of the Kutalayna Collective. It provides strategic direction and ensures collaboration among the different groups.
Early Years Action Group
This group focuses on early childhood development and works to create initiatives and programs that support the well-being and growth of Aboriginal children during their early years.
Aboriginal Advisory Group
Comprised of Aboriginal community members, this group provides guidance and advice on cultural matters, ensuring that the programs and initiatives are culturally safe, appropriate and respectful.
This group represents the broader community and engages with community members to elevate the community's voice and gather feedback, ideas, and input regarding the collective's activities.
The Community Group help ensure that the initiatives are responsive to community needs.
A sprint group is a team or a collection of individuals who work together to complete a specific project or goal within a defined time frame. They collaborate closely to plan, execute, and deliver the work within the sprint duration, which is typically four-six weeks in duration.
The work of these groups is guided by the Collective Plan & Journey to Change, which serves as a framework for their activities. This plan emphasizes lifelong learning for Aboriginal children and their families and acts as a reference document to ensure the collective's commitment to this goal.
The Collective sites adopt a cohesive approach, aiming to build community capacity and establish a sustainable, integrated, and aligned service system. They use data from the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) and Kindergarten Data Census (KDC) to inform their work, making data-driven decisions and tracking progress towards their objectives
